Lightwave 2018 export failure

4) "failed to start" usually is showed when 32 bit version is used on 64 bit LW, or vice versa.
"Failed to start" can be also result of DllMain() returning error (unable to initialize something, actually extremely rarely used by LW plugins) or when plugin uses external statically linked DLL which cannot be looked up (often used by LW plugins which need some 3rd party DLL)..
So solution to these are: download and use FileMon, or modern version called Process Monitor:
This way you will learn what file, directory, registry etc. is accessed and eventually missing or failed to open/create (i.e. lack of privileges etc).
Make screen-shots if you are unable to interpret results from FileMon/Process Monitor.
